Downstream NVIDIA bootloader provides gpt_sector=<sector> kernel command
line option to the kernel. This option should instruct the GPT partition
parser to look at the specified sector for a valid GPT header if the GPT
is not found at the beginning or the end of a block device. Support of
this feature is needed by Tegra-based devices that have TegraPT and GPT
placed in inaccessible by kernel locations.  The GPT entry duplicates
TegraPT partitions.

Secondly, some Tegra-based devices have bootloader that enforces the GPT
scanning of the backup/alternative GPT entry by providing "gpt" cmdline
option to the kernel, but doesn't provide the "gpt_sector" option.
In this case GPT entry resides at a special offset from the end of eMMC
storage.  It is a common situation for older bootloader versions.

The offset is calculated as a total number of eMMC sectors minus number of
eMMC boot sectors minus 1.  This equation is explicitly defined and used
by the downstream Tegra kernels for locating GPT entry.
